Wow so much has gone on

Where to start !!! Well a few weeks ago my oldest daughter Serena was in school and she was getting ready for PE ,she was holding on to a door frame where the door met it (henged) side of the door and in that room was the library ! Serena was in the school hall way ! Well two boys had a fight in the lirary due to on of the boys was being a bully and the other boy had enough of it and stood up grabedhis chair whent to throw it at the bully but he ran out the door slammed it on my daughter Serena's finger ( her wedding ring finger left hand second finger in from the left forth finger from the right) the power from the slamming of the door had cut off the tip of her finger just below the nail and just above the first knuckle !!!!! Our poor baby oh lord I cried out save her finger it's her wedding finger ! My husband went to the school right away as I heard an ambulance coming and then I got word it was for Serena I was in shock it they don't send an ambulance unless it's really bad well I ended up waiting a minute because I am a total whimp and pass out at the sight of blood ! Well it was bad as I said up above her finger was cut off Richard saw it all and was their for her ! I walked in after they had it wrapped up , they where great the school and the ambulace (parametics, staff at school ) my husband went with her to our local hospital when they wanted to cut more off her finger !!!! WHAT????! When they saved the tip it was still intack No way oh I was so mad mad at the medical staff take the easy way out cut off her covanent finger her marriage finger NO !!! We got a second oppionon at a childrens hospital Thank You Jesus ! they saved it ! God is so faithful so now Serena has her finger healing

whew !!!! I have been sick for the last 2 weeks with Glandular fever , whom i got it from my best friends little girl, they thought she had the flu but hey maybe for her it was , but i got the glandular fever really bad. not fun sore throat , fever, swollen glands ,and the itcy rash that seem to like to travel . I itched so bad i ended up scratching my hand raw leaving a not very nice scab.

Well now my oldest daughter has it she is doing much better then I did, no rash for her.

I have really been wanting a cricut so bad i can taste it i have wanted one of these for years but just could never aford it and never really knowing what they did untill really this last year.

I have asked for it for christmas not sure if i am going to get it being with its price tag on itbut we shall see i said to my family nothing else for christmas just this so if they all have to pitch in for it i shall be ever so happy , i really do want this little machine .

Let see hummmmm is there anything else to talk about hummmm

Oh yeah I also have been watching these other lovely women on youtube and their bloggs , and thinking wow mini book swaps wow too cool I am so hoping that i can get some lovely ladies to swap minis with a group of ladies for the swap
it might only end up being me with someone else if so thats ok we can make it grow from there.

so if your interested in join in the mini swap thats great here is what i am wanting to do

I need ladies or gentle men who love to scrapbook and love to bless others with what they make.
the object of this group is to use what you have rather the,cereal boxes any type of card board that you can alter , The idea is to create a mini book with the items you have on hand or that you can go and buy yourself ,and making a beautiful work of Art that you would be proud to receive yourself.
also be willing to ship it to the other person
I do hope to make up kits for the group in the near future but for now i want to keep it easy and simple and just keep it fun .
